Our nation was not founded to be a centrally planned socially straight-jacketed empire ruled by the decrees of a sovereign. With President Obama, seconded and supported by his Attorney General Holder, deciding not to enforce laws they disagree with, the rule of law has ended in the United States. We can date our passage from a nation of laws to a nation of men not with this momentous decision but more effectively from the moment our elected representatives declined to declare this action to be unconstitutional and illegal.
Proposed federal legislation purporting to protect online intellectual property would also impose sweeping new government mandates on internet service providers — a positively Orwellian power grab that would permit the U.S. Justice Department to shut down any internet site it doesn’t like (and cut off its sources of income) on nothing more than a whim.
Why do we never see questions like these being asked on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the LA Times, Newsweek, Time, US News & World Report, et al? But hats-off to Daily Caller for asking relevant and important questions that expose the utter hypocrisy of the Left. Come learn about some really hypocritical ice cream.
If you thought 2012 would bring change to government, think of it more as rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. The two leading candidates at the moment on the right are not champions of limited government. Sadly, it appears that those who consistently support limited government rarely seek high office.
There is a tremendous amount of controversy in our country today about “social justice.” This terms sounds like something that everyone should support, but it is in fact nothing but a socialist agenda. America was founded on the Biblical principle of equality before the law. “Social justice,” which is a Marxist concept, relies on the principle of equality of outcome. These two philosophies are at odds with one another, and produce very different results.
South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley releases further details on the U.S. Supreme Court’s oral argument in the Federal Health Care Reform Act case. The Court has allotted five-and-a-half hours for oral arguments expected to be heard by this February or March, with a decision potentially by late June 2012.
Not only do we have to eat our peas, but we might have to eat our broccoli as well. The Obama Administration reached a tyrannical high recently when, during oral arguments before the District of Columbia Court of Appeals on the constitutionality of Obamacare’s health-insurance mandate, their lawyer, Beth Brinkmann, made the claim that a law requiring Americans to eat broccoli could be constitutional.
At this point in time, anyone who does not understand that America has been taken over by a lawless, communist regime is woefully out of touch with the glaring reality of our situation. How anyone could not see the devilish behavior of Barack Obama and his Marxist buddies in Congress and his administration is hard to fathom, except when we consider that there really are extremely stupid and deluded people in the world. In 2012, vote as if your country is at stake–because it is.
No matter what the polls say I believe that the American people still believe in freedom. Don’t be discouraged by the blather of the pontificating politicians or confused by the conflicting ruminations of the professional talkers. When all is said and done we can trust us. We the people will eventually come down on the side of truth, justice, and the American way.
You hear this one sometimes from socialists: the job of the judiciary is to protect the minority from the majority. No it isn’t. Lawbreakers are in the minority; is it the job of the judiciary to protect the minority of lawbreakers from the majority of law-abiding citizens? No, it is the job of the judiciary to uphold the law–which, in this case, involves protecting the majority from the lawbreaking of the minority.
While a broad cross section of Americans continue to favor a balanced budget amendment (BBA), some believe the idea is too closely identified with the Republican Party, and is unlikely to pass anytime soon. But there may be another way to get spending under control. Unlike the BBA, the National Debt Relief Amendment (NRDA) does not have a “get of jail free card,” that the political class can use to sidestep anti-spending restraints.
In the ongoing examination of judicial myths Rick Green of Wallbuilders Live, Rick looks at the myth that only judges are capable of interpreting the U.S. Constitution. Have you ever heard a liberal say about a controversial (and probably unconstitutional) piece of legislation: “Well, when the Supreme Court rules on it, then we’ll know if it’s constitutional or not.” Bull!
In a previous article I pointed out that the American people have, to the detriment of our freedom, bought into the lie that the judiciary is a “co-equal branch” of our government, when the founder’s statements and the Constitution itself make it clear that it was to be the weakest of the three branches. Another is that judges have a lifetime appointment, and there’s nothing that can be done about it. But we can do something about it. We can insist that judges who trample our freedom and show contempt for the U.S. Constitution be impeached and removed from office. It’s time we exercised that option.
It’s no secret that the courts have been running roughshod over our freedoms for decades. They’ve been encouraged to do so. And through our ignorance, we the people have allowed the courts to trample our liberties. We have allowed the Supreme Court to become a virtual oligarchy that forces its 9-pronged will on the executive branch, the legislative branch, and on the American people. Isn’t it time we learned the truth, dispelled the myths, and took our freedom back?
Now this is the kind of cuts we need to get America back on track fiscally! We’re currently $15 TRILLION in debt. We have an annual deficit of about $1.5 TRILLION, so do the math: in 10 years, unless the economy comes back strong, we’ll have accrued another $15 trillion in debt.This means that cuts of anything less than about $10 trillion over 10 years are a drop in the bucket, a complete waste of everyone’s time. And the “supercommittee” is wringing it’s hands over cutting $1.2 trillion over 10 years? What planet are they on???
You really have to love these Marxist occupationists. To heck with the U.S. Constitution. To heck with property rights. To heck with the Ten Commandments (“You shall not steal”). To heck with any sort of morality. To heck with any sort of freedom. Just have the government seize all housing and “redistribute” it.
You really have to ask yourself if MSNBC infobabe Alex Wagner in this video is for real. She shows contempt for the Second Amendment right of Americans to keep and bear arms, and when confronted with evidence of the counterproductive futility of gun control laws, she resorts to setting up strawmen and consulting foreigners.
Remember those whole-body, X-ray scanners the government installed in airports across the country and kept insisting were so safe? It turns out that they’re not so safe, after all. According to an investigative report by ProPublica/PBS NewsHour, anywhere from six to 100 U.S. airline passengers each year could get cancer from the machines.
In an August column I wrote what were to be two initiated measures to be voted on in South Dakota’s November 2012 General Election. Now, a week after the deadline, one of them will not see the inside of the ballot box. The dead one was whether or not we wanted to join the winner-take-all movement for electing U.S. presidents. The other was whether or not South Dakotans wanted to raise the sales tax by one penny.
A local Denver TV reporter asked Marxist hypocrite Michael Moore at an Occupy Denver event about his wealth, and when he did, Moore got very testy with him. This is a rare and commendable piece of real journalism on the part of reporter Evrod Cassimy. The “mainstream” media usually gives Leftists a pass on tough questions, especially when their hypocrisy and lies would be exposed by such questions. I hope Cassimy doesn’t get fired by his superiors.
The idea of “safety” or “security” is a powerful tool in the collection of emerging dictatorial governments that are not yet able or willing to use outright force to crush the entire population into compliance with the freedom-robbing desires of the rulers of the state. How many freedoms and liberties have we already willingly given up for “security’s” sake? Will we be able to stop and reverse the growth of the police state in America.
Reason TV did an interview of Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE). In the opening of the interview, she nails the socialist approach of the Left to the wall: “This whole notion that we should even have a ‘war on poverty’ dismisses the fact that individuals have a role in their own lives.”
Bill Whittle’s latest Afterburner provides an excellent lesson about the U.S. Constitution and the American way of life. Whittle also contrasts the vastly different ways in which the Left and the Right view the Constitution. While the Left sees it first as an obstacle to their glorious socialist revolution, and if they can’t get around it they’ll just “reinterpret” it to allow them to do what it clearly forbids. The Right sees the U.S. Constitution as, well, the highest law of our nation.
